Re: TOS Enterprise Shuttle Storage?

I always imagined there were one or two (had the budget allowed) ready/alert shuttles parked on the flight deck at all times, with the rest of them stored one deck down, able to be prepped for flight in short order and lifted on the elevator.
That's basically how I pictured it when Trek TOS was originally on NBC. I imagined shuttle maintenance bays on the deck below, with four or six technicians slapping those portable anti-grav units onto a shuttle and manhandling it into position on the elevator-turntable -- kind of like the old college prank of getting a dozen husky guys to lift and move some poor schmuck's Volkswagen Beetle.
